    Dear Friend

    Yes,you are eligible for all the UPSC (union public service commission ) exams except NDA and SCRA because the age limit for

    1.NDA : 16.5 to 19 year

    2.SCRA: 17-21 years.

    3.CPF: 20-25 years.



    Since you have not mentioned your stream in which you have completed your graduation,it is very difficult for me to tell that for which UPSC exams you are eligible.

    However the basic educational educational qualification required is graduation in any stream from a university recognised by UGC.

    At the age of 26 years,you are eligible for the exams like:

    >>Civil services examinations for the post of IAS,IPS,IFS etc

    Age limitations: 21-30 years.

    >>Combined defence services

    Age limitations: 19-24 years.

    >>Indian Forest services :

    Age limitations: 21-30 years.


    Note : If you have completed your bachelor's degree in engineering following branches:

    1.civil engineering

    2.Mechanical engineering

    3.Electronics engineering

    4.Electrical engineering

    then you are eligible for the Indian engineering services.

    Age limitations: 21-30 years.


    Hope the information helps you.

    all the best

    yes of course you are eligible to apply for the upsc examination like
    civil services examination at the age of 26 years
    as the age limit to apply for this examination is 21-30 years .

    even you can apply for the the examinations like

    if you belong to the OBC or the SC/ST category .
    as there is an age relaxation of three years for the OBC aspirants and

    the main thing that will make you eligible for these examination is

    without a graduation or engineering degree you cannot apply for any of these examination.

    Hi dear aspirant,

    Yes,you are eligible for all the UPSC (union public service commission ) exams except NDA and SCRA because the age limit for

    1.NDA : 16.5 to 19 year

    2.SCRA: 17-21 years.

    3.CPF: 20-25 years.


    Since you have not mentioned your stream in which you have completed your graduation,it is very difficult for me to tell that for which UPSC exams you are eligible.

    However the basic educational educational qualification required is graduation in any stream from a university recognised by UGC.

    At the age of 26 years,you are eligible for the exams like:

    >>Civil services examinations for the post of IAS,IPS,IFS etc

    Age limitations: 21-30 years.

    >>Combined defence services

    Age limitations: 19-24 years.

    >>Indian Forest services :

    Age limitations: 21-30 years.


    Note : If you have completed your bachelor's degree in engineering following branches:

    1.civil engineering

    2.Mechanical engineering

    3.Electronics engineering

    4.Electrical engineering

    then you are eligible for the Indian engineering services.

    Age limitations: 21-30 years.


    Wish you best of luck

    Re: Am I eligible for UPSC exams at the age of 26 yrs?

    you are eligible for the communication according your age. if you complete the graduation in any stream from the recognized university that is approved by the ugc/aicet.
    then contumaciously you're eligible for the communication. the share of the marks isn't any matter for the communication.

    you're not eligible for the cds communication wherever the ordinance is twenty one to twenty five years, and no age relaxation for the reserve class

    UPSC conducts varied exams and ordinance is totally different
    in every case.You can apply to any or all exams to that you
    meet the Eligibility Criterion.
    Having a Graduation Degree from a UGC recognized University
    is must .
    you're eligible for several exams conducted by UPSC at the
    graduation level given your age of 26yrs. a number of the exams by UPSC ar Civil Services,Indian Engineering Services,
    scientist communication,Indian Forest services,etc. of these exams need Age limits between 20-30yrs normally class
    and relaxation of 3yrs to OBC and upto 5yrs for SC/ST candidates.
    therefore you're eligible for many of the exams Air Combat Command. to age expulsion solely few
    like CDS wherever ordinance is between 19-25yrs.
